Turquoise Vino

With all the snow days here in North Carolina in the past week,  it gave me some extra time to plan a shoot this weekend as I watched the snow melt.   The cold air was a little rough but keeping up with looks in Fashion Week gave me the inspiration I needed to get it done. And also some styles to look forward to in warmer weather.  What trends of Fashion Week got you motivated for the summer?

For The People Who Never Go Crazy

"I feel bad for the people who never go crazy." -Anonymous

My semester of college starts this week and I am more than ready to reunite with my friends. Getting reacquainted with homework however, that's a different story...  My objectives this weekend is packing and trying to finish my self given project of making a skirt for my mom.  For my look, I think this might be one of my favorite shoots to date.  I felt so creatively free  with going a little print happy with pairing outfit pieces. I bought the cardigan (similar here),  geo crop top (plus size here), and jogger pants (plus similar here)  from Rainbows about two weeks ago while Christmas shopping with my mom. This is definitely a great place to shop for some of the latest fashion trends at low-end prices and brands.  With my money mostly going to books and sewing supplies, this helps me to get the fashionable looks I want with reasonable prices I can actually afford. Plato's Closet is also a great place to shop, especially for gently used name brand clothing at cheaper prices, which you can also swap your brand name clothing and accessories for cash.  This is where I bagged my ankle combat boots.  What high fashion trends do you find price alternatives for?

SCRAMBLED.

And its the first of the monnntthhhhh!!!!.....
 Happy New Years to you guys ! 

Sometimes I have a habit of feeling scrambled with my mind going wild with different outfit combos.  But this look however had automatic clarity.   The abstract shirt and corduroy pants I bought a couple of months ago with my friend Jasmine on a thrift run. Ever since Ive been longing to find time to pull the pair out for dear life from my overstuffed tote.   What clothes do you plan to pull out for the new year?


 




Thrifted: EVRYTHING !

It All Started With A Panda Dream....

2013 has definitely been a year of many changes and growth for me.  I started a new college, I made a plethora of new friendships, I'm developing my skills in my craft of sewing, and most importantly I've grown a closer relationship with God.  Although, I don't have much fan base Im so proud of myself for the time and hard work Ive put into this blog. Especially with all my support Ive gotten from friends and family.  This blog and year was a huge milestone of self-discovery, of both good and bad. I can't wait to see what God has in store for me in 2014 ! See you next blog post... God Bless !



























My top five looks of the year !

Paisley Goes Again

I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas as it came and went. Now Im eager to see what the new year will have in store for me. More blessings I hope. In the mean time I plan to still enjoy the rest of my break before school starts back again.  For my look I bagged both these studded boots (similar on sale here!)  and cheetah print blouse last year at Lane Bryant. And these paisley pants, which Ive worn on a past post I bought earlier this year on a thrift run.

Red Wine & Gold

Its starting to become a little more challenging pulling off my ideal outfit shoots with colder weather especially since I'm playing both camera person and model.  Having on these awesome but thin printed pants doesn't help me out either! But it was all worth it.  This was the outfit I wore to my visual merchandising class fashion show a couple weeks ago, though it wasn't as cold that night as it was during this shoot. Velvet is such an awesome and versatile fabric to wear and I love its stretchability.  Pairing it up with these thrifted gold pants makes this a cool and bold outfit combination. Adding a knit vest I thought would be a nice touch for some layering.  And my mustache earrings are LOVEEE !  What fashion fabrics are you guys most attracted to this season?




  


 

Thrift: Red Velvet blouse, men loafers, gold print pants, vest

Ease To The Mind

Sorry for the absence. But this has been one long of a school semester. (*takes breath*) With projects, studying for exams, organizing a class fashion show which was a success, and managing to find sleep in between the madness I am so glad to be finally home for Christmas break. In the midst of my hectic semester was producing a final project outfit in my sewing class. Using a Vogue pattern I made a collard blouse and pants featuring a zipper and hook and eye closure. I aced the project. Its a little baggy but I'm so happy to have learned how to sew an whole outfit of my own. I know this is only the beginning of my sewing journey. Oh I can't wait till I start my draping class !
